Anticipate Questions

Obviously, the pros know their stuff, but they may ask you where they should park, how to best access the roof, etc. If they’re giving you a consult, they may ask for an electric bill to demonstrate what you’re currently charged and how much solar energy will save you. You will probably be asked when the last time you repaired/replaced your roof was. Anticipate these few things and it can make the service streamlined and quick.

Keep Work Area Clear

It’s pretty easy to keep your roof clear of debris if you clear it off once. Keep your yard and the path the professionals need to use clear of toys, tools, equipment, and anything else that might get in the way of the pros and cause delays.

Entertain Pets and Kids Elsewhere

As cute as pets and kids are, they can be a big distraction. Keep pets indoors and kids out of the work area so your pros can do their job quickly and safely. If your pets and kids are busy elsewhere, they can’t get hurt or slow the work.
